All Work and No Play

Quite the contary. Sometimes if you want something bad enough you find a way to make it happen. I had to admit that our "homeownership to do list" is still rather lengthy, but we put that part of our life on hold and managed to squeeze in some good times. Now that sounds more like the Watsons. We pawned off the kids to Aunt Lyss and Janelle. YEAH!! It looks like they had a way too much fun. Aunt Lyss let them swim for hours, taught them to pee pee in the bushes, made wishes blowing dandilions, met fun college kids (Yes it's true my children met Alyssa's latest fling before me), took over Janelle's treats all while Little Lady just stayed afloat. Basically Aunt Lyss did what all great Aunties do. . . .spoiled them rotten. No wonder they love her. Thanks Aunt Lyss and Janelle.

Tim and I headed up the Canyon for a great ride. I was enjoying my uphill climb when an older, "huskier" lady passed me. She appeared to be much more experienced on the bike. My logic dosen't really make sense but I came to that conclusion as a result of her great calve muscles. . .You better believe that I stepped it up a knotch. What was a leisure bike ride all the sudden turned into quite a work out. After being passed up I peddled my heart out. Hopefully that will be the last time I'm passed up on the trail. :) I can't tell you much about Tim's ride . . . only that he looked pretty beat by the time we met at the bottom. He was a bit more ambitous than I was and conquered the mountain. At the end of the day there is still plenty of "to do's" to accomplish. I'm pretty sure it will all be sitting there for me in the morning. All work*NO play*NO WAY!

Shauna- you are amazing! How do you find time with all your children, work, housework.... to still do crazy things like go biking? And did I hear that you were doing some 200 mile bike ride soon. You go girl!

Okay this day was such a fun day, for me atleast. Pretty much everyone at the pool thought I brought the cutest kids alive and they thought they were pretty entertaining too. Max was even trying to pick up guys for me.
